    So the answer is to let the real bully's win?

    Lib-Nazis? Which ones? The ones running school boards that want to push for creationism to be taught as science? Or the ones who print school books showing Thomas Aquinas as a more important political influence than Thomas Jefferson? What about the ones who try to force kids to pray in school regardless of their religion? Are they Lib-Nazis? What about the school boards who cancel proms because one of the kids attending is gay and wants to go with their partner? Tell us about these 'Lib-Nazis'. Who are they? What system are they running?

    Perhaps the real bullies are those who would prolong the damage to a child's education on a point of false principle.
    Don't work out, work in.

    This issue should be fought - but to prolong this bull**** for the kid is doing more harm than anything.
    Their education, safety, wellbeing, peer relationships and their status *in* school is more important - it's not a game. They don't HAVE time to dick around on the issue. The child needs school because I find it highly unlikely that he's getting a full and proper education at home.

    The parents should duke it out with the school or rally others behind them and encourage them to deal with it - but their priority should be their child.

    Love how you pull out a handful of isolated instances to try to hide the fact that the national educational establishment is controlled by liberalism who seek to push their agenda on everyone -- the teachers and the kids... I am a professional educator and have experienced it first hand in the public schools teaching in Georgia... one reason I am not longer a public educator in the U.S.

    Isolated incidents? I don't know what you're talking about. These 'isolated incidents' happen everyday. Here's a small list from the state you were an educator in:

    School board votes to allow creationism in class - CNN
    Georgia Public School Board Members Beliefs Concerning the Inclusion of Creationism in the Science Curriculum
    Georgia schools to remove creationist stickers from textbooks | Education | guardian.co.uk
    Recent Efforts to Promote Creationism in Schools
    A Battle on School Prayer Takes Shape in Georgia - NYTimes.com
    Georgia: Principal Apologizes for School Prayer Poem
    Bus Driver Fired for Gay Personal Ad : Dispatches from the Culture Wars

    What 'isolated' incidents are you talking about? Is there a state where this doesn't happen? Please find me a state where this kind of thing doesn't happen just so at the very least your dishonest claim of 'isolated incident' can be substantiated somehow?

    Love the irony.
    You hated it so much you just stopped caring and quit.

    And that permitted them to just ooze in some more.
